Alan Rogers Review
Close to both the sea and the centre of the little village of La Bernerie, les Ecureuils is a pleasant and spacious family run site. The sandy beach here is great for children; swimming is restricted to high tide, since the sea goes out a long way, although at low tide a shallow lagoon remains which is perfect for young children. The site has 110 touring pitches, all with 10A electricity close by and 19 with their own water tap and drain. There are also 89 mobile homes and chalets for rent and a further 50 privately owned.
The village has several shops, bars and restaurants, and a sailing school. The fishing port of Pornic is a short drive away and is well worth a visit; it has a busy marina and a factory shop selling a wide range of Breton pottery and souvenirs. To the south is the Ile de Noirmoutier with good beaches and pretty villages. To the north, across the Saint-Nazaire bridge, is the sophisticated resort of La Baule, the historic town of Guérande with its medieval walled city, and its salt marshes producing the well known Sel de Guérande.
Two toilet blocks have been renovated to an excellent standard with controllable showers and washbasins in cubicles. En-suite units for disabled visitors. Baby rooms. Motorhome services. Bar with terrace, also selling bread, plus snack bar and takeaway (July/Aug). Pool complex with heated leisure, swimming and paddling pools with water slides and a flume (15/5-15/9). Renovated playground with trampolines. Tennis/multisports court. Communal barbecue area. WiFi over site (charged; free in bar).
LocationLa Bernerie-en-Retz is 26 km. south of the St Nazaire bridge via D213. From the D213/D13 some 6 km. from junction east of Pornic, turn west on D66 to La Bernerie. Site is signed to right by railway station before reaching town. Link to campsite location map on google
